I'm all for updates and improvements... :-)
As a user (and not really a developer), my one request is that web interface enhancements/improvements/modifications try and maintain compatibility with the 3com Audrey appliances and the MrAudrey image that Pete Flaherty wrote to flash onto the Audrey devices.
I rarely interface with my mh system for daily use other than through one of the Audrey touch screen devices that are scattered through my house; and I have become very accustomed to the push audio from my mh box to the audrey devices for announcements and the "grandfather clock".
I know there has been work on making apps for various Android tablet devices to try and replace the audrey devices; but I can't afford to buy new tablets to have touch screen and remote speakers for the house at the moment... So, please; if possible....don't break the audrey functionality when doing updates/improvements to the mh web interface. :-)
